"Bound to satisfy".
Triple hopped - Super Styrian hops added twice to the coppers then Styrian Goldings added. Hopping Hare is thrice hopped with three types of hop used during the brewing process. Aromatic Goldings and Cascade combine to provide an uplifting citrus-grapefruit and floral aroma, whilst First Gold carries the bitterness. The effect is a refreshing ale with a unique hoppy aroma and well-balanced bitterness that is bound to satisfy! It is a terrific match with roast lamb and spicy Thai dishes!

500 ml bottle. Clear golden body with an off-white head. Aroma of caramel malt with a hint of caramel and floral hops. Flavor is light caramel malt, refreshing fruity and mild bitterness. Medium body and mild aftertaste. OK, refreshing thirst-quencher but easy forgotten.

a_cross (623) - Poole, Dorset, ENGLAND - MAY 27, 2012
Bottle. Light amber, clear; floral hop aroma characteristic of Badger beers; well-carbonated, perhaps too fizzy; spice on the tongue, hops to the fore as expected; slight metallic tinge which spoils it; more floral hops and a touch of grapefruit in the bitter finish; no more than ok.

BlackHaddock (4038) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 11, 2012
Brown 500ml bottle, best before Feb 09, drank May 08. Poured into a pint sleeve glass it was a clear, bright pale golden colour with a good white head that stayed for the whole drink. The aroma was of hops (the label claimed it was thrice hopped), floral with a citrus fruits tang. The taste was fairly hoppy, not by US standards, but heavy for the UK. Dry and a little bitter overal. The dryness gave way to a metallic feel in the mouth and aftertaste, this didn’t help the tasting at all. Bit to harsh for me, the and hops and bitterness didn’t seem to blend together enough and the aforementioned metallic aftertaste seemed to highlight that fact. I can understand a hop fan going for it, but not me again.
